    It's not impossible, just eat more than usual, you'll always put on weight, it's impossible NOT to put on weight if you eat loads and exercise loads. And trust me, i've spent my whole life infront of all types of guys and when a girl has a small butt AND small boobs it literally makes them go 'EWWWWW' especially if you add being skinny to it. Guys just don't say that kind of stuff to people's faces. Obviously if it's some desperate ugly dude he wouldn't mind but good looking guys would. I'm just being real, good luck!
    I have small boobs and a small bum and I've had plenty of boyfriends/flings/admirers....thankyouverymuch :cool:

    This whole "naturally thin" people is a load of crap, really. There are some people who do have faster metabolisms and are more prone to burning fat/calories of course, but it's not natural to be skinny. That's coming from a skinny male who's put finally started putting on weight properly this year.

    I don't personally get offended when someone makes a slightly mean skinny remark. I take it as a compliment because let's face it, everyone knows skinny is hot and anyone who says otherwise is deluding themselves.

    Not saying that some people don't look amazing with curves because it really suits some people, on the whole I just think slim looks a hell of a lot better than fat rolls.

    Oh and not including men in this. Skinny men don't do it for me. Althought what if they feel the same way about me? :eek:
    "Skinny" has negative connotations. Makes the person sound underweight, unhealthy. Skinny isn't hot, because unhealthy isn't hot. If someone has a low body fat percentage combined with very little lean body mass it looks awful (on both genders). Women should have a naturally higher bodyfat percentage than men anyway (because of higher estogen levels).

    So yeah, not everyone knows that skinny is hot. I sure as hell don't find it hot, and I'm a pretty damn skinny male (although I shouldn't be skinny for too much longer!). I can guarantee that women are more big on the "skinny" thing than guys are.

    Regularly throughout my childhood I was told to 'eat more' or 'get some meat on those bones'

    I'm a guy and thought I was quite skinny, but my BMI is actually 19.7 (not that BMI should by taken too seriously.)

    You've got to remember that people are getting fatter but just because a lot of people are fat doesn't mean that its acceptable.

    As for the 'guy don't like skinny girls' thing, that will be true for a few guys but just as many are put off by overweight girls.

    One of my friends at college is on the heavier side and her facebook page is full of ''Only dogs like a bone!'' and ''Real women are curvy!'' It's so annoying, because I can't help being thin no more than she can being a bit heavy?

    Isn't being too skinny quite a big problem in Zimbabwe?
    Touche.

    At least there's no 'curvy' people to call them out on their weight. Even Mugabe rocks dem cheek bones.

    Yeah but that doesn't mean they found your body attractive. Katie Price is what I call ATTRACTIVE, girls could learn a thing or two off her.

    You're an ugly person from the inside too. Racist cow.
    What I find stupid is when people say someone is beautiful on the inside. That's not what physical attraction, aka beauty, is about lol. Noob.

    I'm naturally thin/skinny 5'4 and 108lbs, i eat a normal and healthy diet and don't have any problems with eating. I have a small chest and bum, but that just comes with being thin, i'm completely happy with my figure unlike before, i used to hate being skinny because of the less curvage. I am sick and tired of this new trend where fat people try to feel better about themselves by attacking naturally thin people. These days it's become only correct to like fat. I'm sick of hearing comments like "Oh no, you must be annorexic because your thin!" "You look unhealthy, eat something!" and the ... wait for it... the most cliche jelous statement ever... "Guys don't like women with figures of a small boy, they like real curves." Any other skinnies noticing this? Why do you think people fail to see that skinny doesn't nessacarily mean unhealthy. I can understand it though, if someone is purposely not eating, then that isn't healthy.
    My parents are also thin, so i must have some japanese ancestry somewhere in my family tree.
    Amen to this.

    Every time I meet new people they immeditaly asume I have a eating disorder. :rolleyes: Then they realise I eat more than them...and their friends combined.

    Plus the "Guys don't like women with figures of a small boy, they like real curves." p*sses me off like no tomorrow. The worst is when they use the term 'real women'. What..so naturally thin people aren't real. Wow. Thanks.

    Please don't take this the wrong way but you're never going to get a decent looking guy with no chest and no butt. Just saying.

    Listen, I'm skinny and the only people who've commented on it in a hurtful way are self conscious, slightly over weight girls. So, you should really take it as a compliment that you are the cause of envy.

    Secondly, do you really want to be classified as a real woman regarding the Daily Mails criteria anyway? I'd rather not fit their description thanks!

    And thirdly, skinny is attractive, just as being voluptuous is. Different strokes for different blokes. Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp are completely different yet equally attractive. There's no one description of what's hot. Why else do some people fawn over Miranda Kerr and Natalie Portman whilst others cry over Christina Hendricks and Nigella Lawson?

    Honestly, in real life this issue is barely existent except for a few catty remarks. Yet when you look on here or read tabloids it's made into the biggest issue in the world!

    Eating more and picking up heavy stuff. If you're a skinny guy looking to put on mass and strength the GOMAD (Gallon of Milk a Day) diet is one of the easiest starting steps.

    Except both of you can help your weights with correct diet and exercise...

    Agree 100%. I hate this smear campaign against skinny people in this country where they are saying there is a problem with the media encouraging "size zero"? Are these people serious! The hospitals are chocked full of lard asses, there is an obesity epedic in this country yet we are concerned about how "skinny models are encouraging our children to be unhealthy"! :facepalm: Or when you see an article of a supposed "real" woman with curves, and there's a picture of some fat heifer with more tyers than an articulated lorry! Don't get me wrong I love curves, but half these people proclaiming to be curvy are just plain fat! And this country is deluded if they think we have a problem with skinny people.
